I originally shared this post almost 5 years ago. I was on vacation and my friend Lauren, a fellow Columbus RD (we actually did our Dietetic Internship together at Ohio State), took over for the day.. She shared this Fruit Pizza with Oatmeal Flax Crust and this week I decided to give it a little upgrade and reintroduce it to you guys because it’s the perfect, kid-friendly breakfast or snack…especially for summer with all the fresh fruit available!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s so easy to customize. I tested Lauren’s original recipe using unsweetened pea milk (instead of vanilla almond milk, adding pumpkin seeds for some extra protein and leaving out the coconut. I found that the crust wasn’t quite sweet enough for my liking. So, I made a few tweaks and Squish loved it! I added a couple of dates for some natural sweetness and added fiber. If you make it with vanilla flavored milk and include the coconut, you could probably leave out the dates, but I like the addition. I also adjusted the recipe to make two personal pizzas at a time.
I’ve left the original recipe in the notes section of the recipe if you’d like to see it!Print

- Prep Time: 10 min
- Cook Time: 10 min
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: makes 2 personal pizzas 1x
- 2–3 dates, roughly chopped
- 1/4 c pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
- 1–2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk of choice (i use unsweetened pea milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- peanut butter or yogurt and fresh fruit for topping
- Chocolate chips optional
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper
- Add dates and pumpkin seeds to the food processor and process until chopped.
- Add oats, flax, cinnamon (and coconut if using) and process until well combined and chopped.
- Add milk and vanilla and process until a ball starts to form.
- The dough will be sticky and wet. Scoop out with a spoon, divide in half and use a small piece of parchment paper to press each half of the dough into a circle of your desired thickness. You can also wet your fingers and spread it that way so it doesn’t stick as much.
- Bake for 8 minutes, then let crust cool for a few minutes.
- Spread with your choice of peanut butter or yogurt and top with fruit and chocolate chips
Here’s the original recipe: 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp shredded coconut, ground flax, 1-2 tsp cinnamon.

Oh wow this looks amazing! So colorful and pretty. I wonder if it would work with chia instead of flax. I’m allergic to the flaxseeds.
That pizza looks beautiful! I’m always attracted to meals with lots of colour. 🙂
And yes, Lauren should definitely start a blog! 😛 I’m now about to raid her Instagram page!

this seems like a really basic crust recipes – i like it! it could even be used for pizza pizza (maybe omit the cinnamon?)
The Candid RD says
HEY LAUREN!! Greattttt recipe. Your photos are always fantastic. I need lessons. Do you have a white box or something?? They always look flawless (or maybe it’s because your food is always that good!).
Lauren Aeh says
Hi Gina!! Thank you SO much! I have a great (white) windowsill in my apartment that provides really good natural light – which gives my pics a little added help! 🙂 Hope all is well with you!
Pamela Hernandez says
That looks amazing! And it sound easy. What a bonus!

I’m a huge fan of the fruit pizza!!! This looks absolutely wonderful. I’m thinking today for breakfast…..YES!
Wow does that sound good! Thanks for sharing.
So excited because I have all the ingredients to make this. Will definitely try it out this weekend. 🙂
Ahh this looks like heaven! I absolutely LOVE fruit pizza but not the crust. I love this, and so easy!
Danica @ It's Progression says
I love fruit pizza but I’ve never made a healthier version of the original sugar cookie crust with cream cheese frosting…I seriously cannot wait to make this!!
Laura @ Mommy Run Fast says

Debbie @ Live from La Quinta says
Wow! It’s beautiful and it sounds delicious. Pinning!

Yummy!! I once made fruit “pizzas” out of pancakes and LOVED them. I like your idea to use nut butter as the “sauce.”
This pizza looks delicious! It sounds simple and easy to make. I can’t wait to make this. =) Thanks for sharing.
I’ve had fruit pizza before but never with that crust! I can’t wait to try it 🙂

it’s like you know the way to my heart!!! totally pinned to do this later!
Heather @ Better With Veggies says
Beautiful photo & awesome recipe – I have GOT to try this!!
Kait @ ChickadeeSays says
This looks incredible! The oatmeal-flax crust sounds like it will have so much more flavor than the cauliflower crust that is my go-to!
Hi Lauren! This recipe just came timely for me as I’ve been thinking about making a rolled oat-based crust! I’m also RD2B, love love LOVE cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, and whole-heartedly resonate with your philosophy of cooking with simple,fresh and whole foods! Just followed you on IG and Twitter. Can’t wait to read up more about on your blog soon! 😀
Lauren Aeh says
Hi Josie! So glad you like the recipe – it’s so yummy 🙂 I love that you are an RD2B too and that we share the same philosophy. Can’t wait to connect more with you through IG and Twitter. I just started reading your blog and love it! 🙂
This looks delicious! How many servings is this recipe intended to make? Does one batch of this recipe = one fruit pizza = a serving for one person?
Lauren Aeh says
Hi Melissa! The recipe is intended to yield one fruit pizza. When I make it, my fiance and I split it. It also depends on how thin you make the crust. I usually spread it out so it is more in the thin side to yield a bigger pizza. Hope this helps some! 🙂
Yum, this sounds so good 🙂
Jody - Fit at 55 says
Now that looks AMAZING!!! Even I can make it! 🙂 Easy is good!
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats says
What an innovative and delicious looking recipe! I love how few ingredients it uses!
YES get a blog 🙂 great recipe!
Gina @ Health, Love, and Chocolate says
This sounds amazing, and the perfect way to mix up breakfast!
Hi! I was interested to make this today, but the recipe does not seem to state how much this makes — how many servings is 1 recipe? I suggest this type of info should be included in all recipes you post 🙂 Thanks.
this serves one person!
Kelli at Hungry Hobby says
I’ve always loved fruit pizzas! So cute, fun and delicious of course!!
I made this for a memorial day weekend cookout. Didn’t realize how small it yielded, although tastes super yummy. I blended a banana into peanut butter.
Amanda Sammet says
Yum! I made this recipe this morning and it was enough for both me and my husband. I didn’t have dates or pepitas so I used a few raisins and a handful of cashews – tasted good but I want to make your exact recipe sometime to compare.
so glad you liked it!
